Routemaster-style buses could be introduced in Leeds under proposals from operator FirstGroup.

The company wants to introduce 200 of the three-door buses in a bid to improve journey times in West Yorkshire.

The buses are part of a package of proposals that includes smart ticketing and infrastructure changes.

Brandon Jones, of FirstBus, said the move would help make sure buses spent "less time at the bus stop".
